Blogs, Business, Events


Registration is now open for June's Social Media Breakfast Maine.

This month we are talking about Social Media in Highly Regulated Industries.


Social Media is fun, exciting, ever changing, popular, fast and surprising – a lot of companies don’t like that and for good reason. Many of us work in industries that are more regulated. Many are protecting their clients, their staff, their reputation and more. So how do highly regulated industries take part in the social media revolution?

Regulated industries and B2Bers understand the value of social media but many don’t know how to implement it well or have a lot of roadblocks up against them. In this loaded breakfast we hope to discuss challenges many of you face, look at solutions and hear from a group of experienced experts on action items, next steps and advice.

For this special breakfast we are going to have two small panels – one to represent the client side and the other the privacy and legality side of the issues.

Some topics we will discuss:

  • Creating a social media policy
  • Getting support in-house
  • Protecting your corporate name
  • In-house marketing versus hiring an agency or contractor
  • Training and educating staff
  • Legal issues

Who should be there? (this list is just a start)

  • People in health care
  • People working in financial services
  • Automotive industry
  • Insurance
  • B2B business types
  • Agencies and consultants working with highly regulated industries
  • Organizations that are concerned with protecting their members and supporters

United Way’s Preble Street Pantry Project

This month Bob O’Brien from Noyes Hall & Allen Insurance has offered to make SMBME a pickup for the United Way of Greater Portland’s Pantry Project. If you would like to bring a pantry item, Bob will pick it up and pass it along. Below is more information. Thank you!

As a company-wide effort to fight hunger in Portland, Noyes Hall & Allen Insurance is participating in United Way of Greater Portland’s Pantry Project. The Project is an effort by United Way to collect food for Preble Street and other food pantries in Greater Portland.

The latest numbers for Maine show that one in five households (20%) in Greater Portland suffer from food insecurity, meaning families are unsure where their next meal will come. More than half of these families are actually hungry. That means 10% of people in Greater Portland do not have enough food in their houses to create meals and their children go to school hungry and may go to bed hungry.

We can help change this. Please bring canned or boxed food to the Social Media Breakfast at the Eastland Hotel on Friday, June 24. Bob O’Brien from Noyes Hall & Allen will collect the food and deliver it to Preble Street. Together, we can make a difference.
